CiLCA 2022 Learning Agreement

This is the Learning Agreement which needs to be completed for the next round of CiLCA training and mentoring which starts in April 2022.

(See training section on website for details and booking form)

CiLCA – The Qualification for you

The Certificate in Local Council Administration is a distance learning course verified by the Monitoring and Verification Board which is directly applicable to "the day job".

On registering for CiLCA, the candidate has one year to complete the portfolio of evidence for submission.


We feel that the time and commitment you put into offering support and help to your council needs to be recognised and the CiLCA qualification does just this! Expect to put in on average about 50 hours of work and one of the rewards is another notch on the salary scale, providing your council has signed up to the National Agreement. CiLCA also offers an opportunity to ensure you have the basic knowledge to carry out a professional job. CiLCA is the recognised qualification in our sector as a sign of achievement and is required in most job applications. Consider your future aspirations.


So think about your future, think about your current knowledge, think about your council. This is your next step to professionalism. CiLCA is also a requirement of your council to have a qualified Clerk in adopting the General Power of Competence and obtaining the Local Council Award Scheme. Ask GAPTC for more details.

Now is the time to explore this.

Civility & Respect Final Newsltter

The civility and respect project is progressing well – the project board approved an initial programme of support for councils, councillors and officers and details of this programme will be delivered over the next few months. The programme includes a bespoke range of training designed to raise awareness, support those suffering from any form of bullying, harassment, or intimidation, and to help the sector develop the necessary skills to head off unwanted behaviour before it becomes an issue. Details and dates of the first range of training are included in the newsletter, and we are inviting everyone to take advantage of the offer of a 50% reduction in all Civility and Respect Training costs until the end of this year. More dates for the training will be added depending on demand.

For further updates and information, please visit the civility and respect pages of NALC's website:

Clerks' Handover Toolkit

When your clerk retires or resigns it is good practice to ensure a smooth handover period. This toolkit lists what every new clerk will need to know before the former clerk leaves. We suggest a handover period in which this can be achieved. It may be a good idea to name who is responsible for handing over each item listed and noting a completion date.
